HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c175W
30. Mr. J. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that alien passengers in transit through London Airport who are changing air lines but not leaving the airport are required to fill in an alien's landing card; and whether he will dispense with this requirement and thus follow the procedure in operation at foreign airports, such as Paris or Rome, as foreign travellers are irked by this formality.

Mr. Ede

An alien passenger who lands in transit is not required by the immigration staff to complete a landing card unless he proposes to leave the airport before continuing his journey.
